7 Recipes to Cook Up for Labor Day

by Waverly Wilde

Cooking on Labor Day should be a labor of love -- and with these recipes it will be!

The Labor Day Burger

Let’s start off with the titular burger of the day, a burger so great it takes its name from the holiday itself. Bacon, bread crumbs, tomatoes, Colby-Jack cheese, and pepper flakes and ground pepper round out this grill favorite that will have your guests’ mouths watering in anticipation.

Fresh Peach Cake

Soft and sweet, you can’t go wrong with this cake. And while it isn’t quite Don McLean’s “American Pie” -- or something you need the grill for -- this peach cake will still be something that people talk about for years to come. Sweet, fresh peaches form the flavor base for this cake, and then the almond toppings will give it a little added crunch.

Swordfish Skewers w/Salsa Verde

If you really want to unsheath savory dishes at your cookout this year, then we simply suggest this Swordfish skewer recipe. It offers up a refreshing -- and healthier -- alternative to the normal “burgers and hot dog type” faire that most people serve at a cookout.

Coconut and Cream Float

Every Labor Day event needs to be sure to include a splash of summer, and there’s no better way to do that than with some delicious summertime drinks!

There’s a reason this recipe floated to the top of our list -- it’s simple and delicious at the same time! It can also be made in either virgin or adult variations, making it an easy drink for family parties.

Chile-Lime Grilled Corn

 Nothing says summer like corn on the cob, and this zesty yet tasty grilled recipe is going to turn that cob-eating grin to nothing but smiles. Pesto and cilantro fans especially will want to check this one out.

Grilled Chicken w/Mustard Barbecue Sauce

It’s important to make the most of your grill while you still can, and chicken is always a great choice. 

And while we’ve got you at the grill, let’s turn things up a bit and put a little twist on the standard barbecue sauce -- we’ve chosen a mustard barbecue sauce for just that purpose.

All-American Pudding Cake

Sure, sure, we may have already had one cake recipe on this list already, but how could we say no to the red, white, and blue pudding cake?

That’s right -- we couldn’t, and all of your guests won’t be able to say no to it either.

 

No matter how you decide to celebrate Labor Day this year, these recipes are sure to help close out the summer with a bang. And if your appliances aren’t quite getting the job done, stop on by! We’re here year-round to help you with all your appliance needs!
